It is the 21st Centaury;
you are scientist called Gordon Freeman who has recently
been taken on by the Black Mesa Research Facility. Recommended
by your former professor, Dr. Kleiner of the 'Massachusetts
Institute of Technology'. You have been assigned to
work in the Anomalous Materials Laboratory.
You take the transit
system from your living quarters to the 'Level 3' laboratories.
Upon arrival you get kitted out in your 'Hazardous Environment
Suit' ready to perform your daily routine and you're
Once you get down to the labs it is apparent that things
are a little different. Your two senior colleagues
meet you at the entrance to the lab, informing you that
today is going to be the just the same as any

Fighting your way to
freedom is the only option now. What lies ahead is uncertain,
it seems that nothing can be worse then your current
